Many universities in China include internships as part of graduation requirements. Students doing an internship fill short-term positions with companies or organizations to gain hands-on work experience and to help develop career-specific skills. An internship is important for two reasons. Firstly, it can give students a better idea of whether their chosen field is right for them. Secondly, an internship can teach students skills which will help them land their ideal job after graduation.

However, many students do not think it is necessary for universities to make internships compulsory. They complain that applying for and doing an internship takes up precious time which would be better spent preparing for postgraduate school entrance examinations. Some students also complain about being treated as free or cheap labor and being assigned to trivial jobs such as answering the telephone, photocopying and buying lunchboxes for the staff which are not related to their field of study. Some students fake (伪造) internship experiences, for example, by using connections to get their Internship Evaluation Form stamped, which makes a mockery of the rule.

Internships are Invaluable for College Students

         Internships are one of the indispensable steps for college students who would like to graduate from university smoothly. Different people hold various opinions about that. Some students reckon that internships are valuable treasures and lay a foundation of  their career life. On the contrary, the others complain that they don’t gain anything useful and making internships compulsory is a waste of their limited time. From my own perspective, I firmly believe that it’s essential for college students to apply for and do an internship.

         Today, we live in a world where most college students are desirous of success in the quickest way possible. They think internships are useless and ignore the advantages that internships can bring. First, doing an internship enables them to find out whether the job they have chosen is suitable for them or not. But the truth is that the current college student is an increasingly impetuous and immature generation, and is easy to follow the trend where they think they can achieve success easily and make money such as the popular purchasing agent. Every child, to be honest, is born with special talent, and not all the children are right for the same job. In that case, an internship is a perfect chance to let them have a further understanding about the chosen job, and teach them to distinguish appropriate work from inappropriate work.

         What’s more, college students can cultivate relevant practical skills and enrich hands-on knowledge from the internship. What they should clearly know is that the current society, frankly speaking, requires all-round college students who equip with theory and practice. However, the college education doesn’t provide students with practical knowledge. It’s true that Chinese education always stress grades no matter students are in high school or in college. The chance of practice must be gripped by students themselves. Under that circumstance, an internship is a good chance for them to achieve necessary skills and then make good preparations for future jobs. 

         In addition, it is important for college students to get sufficient connects which can get by doing an internship. A majority of students who just enter the workplace are apt to look down on certain trivial jobs such as answering the phone or photocopying, which reflects their wrong attitude. College students do not  realize these things can help them to create a good workplace connections. The more people they know, the more likely they are to find someone who can help them find opportunities and meet with success. In conclusion, personal achievements rely on connects partly. No matter what they are in the occupation, there is no bad aspect for a green hand to know more people in working life.

         Internships have special values, an important one of which is that students can become better gradually by making up their own deficiencies. Only when college students pay much attention to it and make full use of it can they acquire huge benefits. As a saying goes, “ Everything must be only done then been understood profoundly”. They will gain rich and valuable experience compared with their peer groups who don’t take it serious."
